WRVW/Nashville Morning Show Helps Listener Get A Kidney Transplant

The iHEARTMEDIA Top 40 WRVW (107.5 THE RIVER)/NASHVILLE morning show of WOODY & JIM helped an ailing listener get a new kidney. Back in august, a listener named CAROL reached out to the station's sales staff trying to buy ads in order to get a kidney for her husband RICHIE, who had in Stage 5 kidney failure. The waiting list for a kidney transplant was four years, and there was little chance that he would make it that long.
WOODY & JIM promptly got ahold of the story and brought them on the air to tell their story. Over a dozen listeners, complete strangers, were willing to get tested to see if they were a match, they found a match and in late October he got his new kidney!
RICHIE and CAROL returned to the air again this morning, along with the donor KIM, to recap and check-in. Suffice it to say, it was an uplifting experience.
